Normal is nothing more than a cycle on a washing machine.
Whoopi Goldberg

Fiction is a kind of compassion-generating machine that saves us from sloth. Is life kind or cruel? Yes, Literature answers. Are people good or bad? You bet, says Literature. But unlike other systems of knowing, Literature declines to eradicate one truth in favor of another.
George Saunders

One can decide that the principal role of knowledge is as an indispensable element in the functioning of society, and act in accordance with that decision, only if one has already decided that society is a giant machine.
Jean-Francois Lyotard

The Saunders quote is just so right - everything in life is a matter of perspective, everyone has their own truth, there is no absolute, ever.
